  • Autres infos...

    Autres infos...

    Fly into Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW), and then take 2 buses to the house for about $3 USD, or Uber for about $30-35 USD.

    NOTE: It's best to arrive during the daytime hours, from Monday to Friday if you want to take the buses, as bus service is either nonexistent or slow at night and on the weekend. I recommend you download the UBER or LYFT apps on your phone if you plan to arrive that way.

    HOURS: about 20 to 25 hours a week

    Depending on the time of year, there is usually an interesting mix of people in our houses a mix of internationals from all over the world. We usually also have native speakers in the house to assist non native speakers with English.
